I’m still catching up on today’s fantastic ladies’ Wimbledon semi-finals (you know there’s a good match waiting on the DVR when non-tennis fans are leaving “Wow!” emails in your inbox.) Elena Dementieva has always had great ground strokes and a solid return game, but suddenly the gal’s got serve. She was averaging a higher second serve speed than Serena Williams was. Say what?
Check out this fun video for proof that Dementieva has found her serving mojo:
Here’s hoping Elena keeps up her fantastic form into the US Open – it’s great to see her contending at the highest levels.

Looking forward to seeing which Williams does more damage on her serve in Saturday’s Wimbledon final! Go V!
